Hello all... My sweet DIL has chosen a quilt with 8" blocks with a 6" snowflake appliqued to each block. The sample has each snowflake stitched with a blanket stitch. The sample was made using wools, but I'm using high-grade flannels (which are turning out difficult to find in the colors she has chosen!)! The snowflake pattern is included (its from a magazine), and I assume I'm to copy it? The instructions assume that the quiltmaker knows what to do here... so.. my question, should I copy it, cut it out and pin it to the fabric and cut from that? Should I copy the pattern onto freezer paper and adhere it to the fabric? Or, should I use some soft "steam-a-seam" stuff... sigh... I can't even speak the language... please forgive??
Um, HELP?????? Thank you!!!! And please let me know if I've even given enough information for you??
